Getting a mammogram? Nervous about having a diagnostic screening? Your bosom buddy can offer more than friendship when it comes to breast health. South Jersey Radiology encourages you and your BFFs to use a “bosom buddy system” as part of your breast health regimen.
We’re all familiar with the “buddy system,” a strategy in which two people—buddies—work together to monitor and help each other. A “bosom buddy system” applies this concept to breast health! If you’ve ever been so busy with work and family that you’ve forgotten to get your mammogram, you’ll appreciate the bosom buddy system. With a simple phone call, text or email, bosom buddies can remind each other to schedule an annual mammogram, then prompt each other with the appointment date and time. (At South Jersey Radiology, you can simply go to any page on our site and click the 24/7 button to book an appointment online. Simple and fast!) Bosom buddies can even accompany each other to a screening mammogram just to make sure neither forgets to go!
Maybe you or a friend, family member, or co-worker has needed a diagnostic mammogram to identify a potential abnormality. You know that a diagnostic mammogram can create some apprehension. In that situation, a bosom buddy can provide a sense of comfort, calm, or even comic relief. And, for the patient distracted by worry, the bosom buddy offers another set of ears as well.
South Jersey Radiology’s Women’s Imaging Centers offer the latest technology in a warm and friendly environment with early morning, evening and weekend hours to accommodate the busiest of schedules. The bosom buddy system is a great way to enhance your overall breast screening experience and ensure that you and your buddy remain “breast friends.”
